Pharmaceutical leaflet inspection system

02 April 2014

An end-of-line patient leaflet inspection system has been designed by Olmec UK for use with a new decongestant product.

The patient leaflets are hand-inserted into the product carton and Olmec has worked in close collaboration with the supplier to develop a simple simple user-interface. 

Patient leaflets are dispensed from a friction feeder and a simple code-reading system reads the pharmacode and compares it to the code in a database to confirm that it is the correct leaflet. An interface with the leaflet feeder ensures that any incorrect leaflets are automatically rejected and do not reach the packer. 

The user interface has been designed so that the operator simply has to select the correct recipe for the product and the system does the rest. The packing line has several operators working together and great care has been taken to optimise the read-rate of the leaflets to ensure that there is no delay in their delivery to the operators.
